This is an attempt to (re)assemble anthropological and historical traces of Egypt, and by virtue of its entanglements in multiple other “Overlapping Territories [and] Intertwined Histories” (Edward Said), of the Middle East, South Asia, Central Asia, and Europe, whenever pertinent. It is a work of actual and potential realities and imaginaries, alternative epistemologies, networks of human and non-human agencies, philosophies, method(ologie)s, and an ongoing intervention that seeks to (un)learn what we conventionally know. In effect, it is an engagement that is in medias res.
